Prizzy Prizzy Please Release Show

On April 20th, Joyful Noise Records will be releasing the latests effort from Prizzy Prizzy Please entitled Chroma Cannon. A couple months months ago we gave you a sneak peak with the track “Large Hadron Collider”, and now we bring you the track “Lost”. This track demonstrates the sonic diversity that PPP put in play through out the album. Mixing high-energy, compulsive electronics, with laidback horns and falsetto vocals, it is a fascinating track.

Prizzy Prizzy Please will be celebrating the tomorrow night (April 16th) at Beat Kitchen with Sass Dragons before heading out on a nationwide tour.


Chicago Music Project

What is not to love about Chicago Music project and cmpTV? They have asked me to share this video with everyone, and I am happy to support this great Chicago-based organization.


Lazer Crystal @ the Hideout

I am really begin to love the “video flyers” for upcoming shows. On April 17th at The Hideout Lazer Crystal (Nicholas Read (electronics & vocals), Josh Johannpeter (percussion), & Mikale De Graff (vocals & electronics)) will celebrate the release for their Thrill Jockey debut, MCMLXXX. Lazer Crystal rests on the darker side of electronic retro-pop. Their sound hints to references of Joy Division or very early Depeche Mode, but with much more advanced electronics and layers of various elements.

The album will be officially released by Thrill Jockey on May 4th, and Lazer Crystal will be heading over seas for the month of May.


The Echo & The Light

During the night, 3am to be exact, Tiny Engines announced that they will be releasing the sophomore album from Castevet. The 8 song 12” LP will be called The Echo & The Light, and if that title sound familiar to fans then I will explain. Originally pressed in CD and tape format as an extremely limited six-song EP for the band’s 09 Winter tour with Grown Ups, the six tracks – plus two brand new offerings – have been re-recorded and engineered by Dennis Pleckham at Comatose Studio in Bradley, IL and mastered by Carl Saff (Melt Banana, Young Widows, Ghosts And Vodka) at Saff Mastering in Chicago. The four piece explosive punk band broke through last year with their debut Summer Fences and this album is really an extension of that effort. Tiny Engines will release the album on June 29th, and there will be 200 copies on 180 gram black vinyl and 300 on white vinyl.

You can preorder the album today, and you can catch Castevet on June 12th at Beat Kitchen.
